Rain, hail, shine or snow, Pink Mountains will be in the Winter Magic Parade in Katoomba this Saturday, June 18!

Our entry is open to all LGBTIQ people and their allies. It is such an important time for the LGBTIQ communities and our families, friends, and allies to be visible and out-and-proud!

Thirty-five people have registered for our entry so far. We need to tell the Winter Magic organisers how many people are in our entry, so if you’d like to take part but haven’t already registered, please contact Julie from our parade committee at or on 0408 198 842.

The Winter Magic theme this year is “Where The Magic Things Are” – and we will have a fabulous magical soundtrack accompanying us in the parade!

The Pink Mountains theme is PINK – please wear pink and/or white if possible – this colour scheme will unite us as the Pink Mountains LGBTIQ community.
